'Making of the Modern World' is the first year core module for all full-time History single honours and joint degree students. It may also be taken as an option by part-time students, visiting students, and students from other departments. In addition to the standard timetable, the module is also offered every few years as an evening option for part-time Historical Studies students. The module is normally only available as a 30 CAT version.
All information for HI153 students is on the HI153 Moodle site (available on 2 October 2020).
The module contextualises later modern history by providing a framework in which major historical processes of the later modern era are studied on a world-wide scale. The module moves away from a eurocentric and narrative focus and provides more scope for historical approaches based on, among other things, culture, identity and power.
